We Have the Facts and We're Voting Yes is the second studio album by indie rock band Death Cab for Cutie, released March 21, 2000, on Barsuk Records. It is a concept album about a ruined relationship. It was ranked the 14th Greatest Indie Rock album of all time by Amazon.com.
In 2011, guitarist Chris Walla reflected upon the album stating: "That second record, especially, for years and years has been my favorite...As I try to figure out what it is about that record that I react to so strongly we started recording it like twelve years ago dissecting all those elements and trying to reverse-engineer what happened, Ive learned so much about what I value about songwriting and about performances."
Barsuk is releasing newly reissued vinyl versions of three Death Cab for Cutie classics, with original artwork: Something About Airplanes, We Have The Facts And We're Voting Yes, and The Photo Album, all on high quality 180-gram QRP vinyl with download codes.
Death Cab for Cutie originally formed in Bellingham, WA, in 1997 with their cassette-only Elsinor Records release, You Can Play These Songs With Chords. The group, which appropriated its name from a song title by '60s UK rock ensemble The Bonzo Dog Band, has consistently released outstanding albums over the years, gaining a wider audience and seeping into the consciousness of mainstream America with the success of their latest albums, the most recent of which were released by Atlantic Records.
"Let's see, how many ways can I say this album is great? Great as in magnitude; great as in majestic; great as in fearsome. I say fearsome because it's scary how this album is both archetypically Death Cab for Cutie and an augury of what they might do in the future." -The Stranger
"Lapping like waves on the kind, clean beaches of deliberate hypnosis, Death Cab for Cutie's new "We Have the Facts and We're Voting Yes" rebounds with charming, churning visions of softly spoken indie- rock." -Maximum Ink
